Classic toys meet stamp collecting with the release of the Royal Mail’s Classic Toys commemorative collection of stamps, featuring iconic UK toys from the past 100 years. Designed by London-based creative agency Interbang, the series of 10 stamps showcases the creativity, quality, and innovation of the British toy industry.

Britain Toy Figures, Spacehopper, Fuzzy-Felt, Meccano, Hornby Dublo model train sets, and my personal favorite: Action Man.
